An Open Letter to Chicken Pot Pie

Recipe: Chicken Pot Pie II

Dear Chicken Pot Pie,

We got off on the wrong foot.  I know it's no surprise to you that we haven't had the best relationship.  When I was four and you were served in my school cafeteria, I scoffed.  I thought you smelled funny.  And let's face it, when I poked you, out seeped a oddly colored goo with vegetables in it.  So I put you on the floor and tried to pretend you didn't exist.  No one was fooled and my time spent with a mop cleaning you up didn't do much for our friendship.  

I've not given you another chance.  Twenty-seven years later, I've come to realize that you should never judge a food by your preschool cafeteria.  Oh, Chicken Pot Pie, I was wrong.  I got up the nerve to try you again- to make you myself- and you know what?  I love you!  You are so tasty, with your creamy goodness and bits of pie crust.  Your veggie and chicken filled insides are heavenly!

So I officially apologize, Chicken Pot Pie.  It wasn't you.  It was me.  Can we start over?  Let's do dinner again real soon, okay?

Warmest regards,
